I won’t turn on the news when I watch TV
Because I can’t handle the things I know I will see
Instead I watch comedies and try to push them from my mind
I won’t worry about them if I pretend they’re not there, right?
Not every human gets along
We’re all different but the same
Feel weak but act strong
We’re arguing and quibbling over details and facts
We really need to clean up our act
There are people that are dying
And kids being shot
We’re in Congress pressing for laws
But more and more of us are not
I won’t be a part of that statistic
And silence those that are gone
It’s not time to stop fighting
We can’t just move on
Stop saying that crazy people are just going to do crazy things
We don’t give them the help they need
We don’t recognize what we should see
Stop trying to protect these people that kill
Say they were bullied, divorced and had a void to fill
If a Muslim killed three Christians we’d see it in an instant
But another white Christian kills and we resist it
It’s not freedom if it’s only for the rich
Only Christians and only the white
It’s freedom if everyone get’s it
And it’s freedom because it’s right
But now you’re waving your flag
Like you know what it means
And preaching the freedom we are allowed to receive
But so many people still are not treated the same
You’re yelling America the Free
But we’re done playing your game
Where were you when you said
That everyone is equal?
Or did you just mean
The one’s that fit your definition of good people?
I am so sick of hearing, make America great again
When were we great?
With our slaves?
With our wars?
With our unemployed?
With our greed?
With our silencing of minorities?
We have never been the best
But we know what we need
We need freedom
For men and women
For everyone in between
For everyone left drifting
We need love
Not more hate
To make America great
